Everest Expedition Difficulties
High Altitudes and Lack of Oxygen
Climbing to the top of the Everest mountain means getting to an incredible altitude of 8848 meters. This is an excruciatingly high altitude for anyone and especially for people who live in lower regions. The main difficulty with the high altitude is the lack of oxygen. As you head higher in elevation and altitude, the air pressure slowly decreases. This results in low oxygen. You will be carrying oxygen cylinders during your climb, but be careful to use it wisely.

Reaching the top, you may be having summit fever and want to take a few more stops before stopping for the day. But proper acclimatizing and rest is needed for you to survive the altitude sickness that comes with the thrill of high altitudes.
